“If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were rising against me, I could hide. But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers” (Psalm 55:12-14).

Often I see these memes that say something like ‘Hey, if God removed someone from your life, it was for the best’. There is deep truth in that, however, it doesn’t remove the pain of losing friends, especially those with whom we once had ‘sweet fellowship.’ Even sadder is watching those same people who have been removed from our lives (by removing themselves), stumble, fall, and become people we don’t even recognize any more. Their joy is gone, their peace is gone. They become angry, bitter and unforgiving to everyone around them. It grieves my heart that they reject the light of salvation for the darkness of their own making. All I can do is pray. Pray. Just pray … for them, for me.
